On January 23, 2016, Jimmy Bain died while in his cabin on Def Leppard’s “Hysteria on the High Seas” cruise. He was due to perform on the cruise with his group Last In Line the following day. The performance did not go ahead, and band members informed fans on the cruise that he had been battling pneumonia for some time. The cause of death was determined to be lung cancer. Bain had not been diagnosed with cancer and was only aware of his pneumonia.

“We had four rehearsals four hours a day, then a flight to Miami for the DEF LEPPARD rock cruise. A pre-sail gig and soundcheck was scheduled for the following day. At the gig, Jimmy played great and even sang that night while holding a heavy bass guitar on his back, never complaining or asking for help. Next day, we preceded to board the cruise ship for a five-day voyage of which we were scheduled to play Sunday, the fourth day. That gig never happened, as Jimmy passed away in his cabin the night before. We were devastated.”

His personal artifacts were all sent to Jimmy Bain’s long time girlfriend.  Copies of the FEDEX label are offered as provenance.  We dealt with Bain’s girlfriend directly and obtained the items directly from her.

Offered is Jimmy Bain’s microphones and microphone case that he had with him on this tour and mic’s he used on stage and on previous tours.   The case shows tons of travel use and is made by Excalibur.  White labels appear on the side of the Microphone case which is in 18x 6″ x 6″, reading “Power Cords, Signal Cord Parts.”

  1.  Sony F V610 Cardiod Dyanmic Microphone
  2. Starpower SP-1 NADY
  3. Vintage SHURE Beta 58A
  4. Microphone with Skull Paper Logo – Bain’s marked this microphone with a Skull so he would know which one was his favorite.

These microphones should be in working condition.  But they remain untouched and unused since his death.

We have included Jani Lane’s photo’s as Bain’s and Lane had some association through girlfriends and working together.
